Prez poll: Nadda seeks opposition support for Droupadi Murmu

Speaks to Kharge, Deve Gowda, Farooq Abdullah and a few others


BJP president J.P. Nadda, on Friday, reached out to various opposition leaders and sought their support for the NDA's presidential candidate Droupadi Murmu.

Sources said Nadda called up Congress leaders Mallikarjun Kharge and Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, former prime minister and JD(S) leader H.D. Deve Gowda while seeking to build a consensus on Murmu's candidature.

Nadda has also called NC leader and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah and some other opposition leaders.

Murmu herself had earlier called senior opposition leaders, including Sonia Gandhi, Sharad Pawar and Mamata Banerjee, and sought their support for her candidature for the top constitutional post in the country.

Murmu, if elected, would be the first tribal and the second woman to occupy the post of president of India.
